Patient Information

Background Information

Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Wassel manages a variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions.

Dr. Wassel practices a limited scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from simple dental extractions to wisdom tooth removal, and dental implant surgery. This also includes techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention in order to place dental implants.

Our staff is trained in assisting with intravenous (IV) sedation or outpatient general anesthesia in our state-of-the-art office setting. Patients are continuously monitored during and after surgery.
